Lagos deputy governor dumps Ambode for Sanwo-Olu

Lagos Deputy Governor Idiat Oluranti Adebule

Lagos State Deputy Governor, Dr Idiat Adebule, on Tuesday abandoned Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, as she announced her support for Babajide Sanwo-Olu in the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary election.

Mr Sanwo-Olu is Governor Ambode’s only challenger for the party’s governorship ticket.

He enjoys the support of APC national leader, Bola Tinubu; Lagos APC National Assembly caucus; Lagos House of Assembly members, and other ranking members of the state chapter of APC.

Adebule told newsmen at Ward A and D in Iba Local Council Development Area of Lagos State where she participated in the governorship primary that she would endorse the candidate chosen by the party.

“The party has chosen a man and it is that man that I will support and follow,” she said.

Some of her aides came with Sanwo-Olu’s posters and banners.
